"Enough of the D.C. Dems"

I recommend reading it at the Source, in it's entirety.

Molly Ivins: Enough of the D.C. Dems

"Mah fellow progressives, now is the time for all good men and women to come to
the aid of the party. I don’t know about you, but I have had it with the D.C.
Democrats, had it with the DLC Democrats, had it with every calculating,
equivocating, triangulating, straddling, hair-splitting son of a bitch up


Here are three they should stick to:

1) Iraq is making terrorism worse; it’s a breeding ground. We need to
extricate ourselves as soon as possible. We are not helping the Iraqis by
2) Full public financing of campaigns so as to drive the
moneylenders from the halls of Washington.
3) Single-payer health insurance.


This is not a time for a candidate who will offend no
one; it is time for a candidate who takes clear stands and kicks ass.


I am tired of having the party nomination decided before the first
primary vote is cast, tired of having the party beholden to the same old
Establishment money.

We can raise our own money on the Internet, and we
know it. Howard Dean raised $42 million, largely on the web, with a late start
when he was running for President, and that ain't chicken feed. If we double
it, it gives us the lock on the nomination. So let's go find a good candidate
early and organize the shit out of our side.""
It was hard not to post the whole thing, go read it Here.
